Fish are what are on my mind. As some know, my kids are getting their very first pets today, betta fish. They both have tanks set up in their rooms. Cycling and breeding good bacteria on decorations has been happening. The kids have care cheat sheets, made by moi. It is exciting! What colors will they pick? What fin style? Weee!
And guess what. I got a tank in my bedroom now, too. In our dining room we have a 29 gallon tank. It is my husband’s, but it housed 3 gouramis. My gouramis. You can see through me, right? You know something happened.
One of the gouramis (intentional or not) rammed and killed one of my husband’s ghost catfish. We had this fish less than a week (bought it the 1st and discovered the still alive and mangled fish the 6th). You can buy 2 of my gourami for the cost of one of my husband’s glass cats. Even worse, the gouramis started picking on old man glass cat (a fish we bought in 2008). Hence, new tank. And from the look of things, they seem to like it.
But, I’m guessing most of you didn’t come for the fish tales. You’re here for a peek at my writer life. I wrote all my writing days, except Friday. Friday night I was evicting and relocating my gouramis. In my writing I’ve been focusing on finishing (code names) TJ and CLOSURE. I’m happy to announce I finished TJ. As it was my “main project” that determine’s Cycle 1.2’s end (see here for cycling schedule details), I’ll need to pick a new priority project. I will do that once CLOSURE is done. I really do want it done.
The sticker plan remains quite motivating, too. Since it is a new month, that means new meaning for my Angry Birds stickers. This month the focus is video games. This is a two fold reason. #1) Main game I mean to play is Brain Age (to strengthen my mind). #2) Hubby and I want to get rid of our PS2 by the end of the year and I have unfinished games on it. Not bad reasons, right? Well, then… It is for science! Maybe? Ummm…
